So I'm not exactly sure as to the point behind doing a blog. If its just to talk about random shit or what, but I guess I'll give this a go.
I'm trying desperately to make music. I love ska music with the passion of a thousand suns, and jam with strangers all the time. How this occurs, is well...
I'm in the US Navy, stationed in Pearl Harbor, HI. We have a liberty centre on base, which has a fancy-ass music room in it. This music room contains an acoustic guitar, electric guitar (a nice strat), a yamaha bass, drum set, amps, mics, the whole bit. Most days, I'll go up there and jam out by myself. Some days, however, there will be someone else already in the room. Everyone is always open to jam out, fuck around, w/e, so its always cool. Most people are like, 'so what do you play' and I'm like 'Ska' and their all 'wtf is ska', so we proceed to make ska music, and the strangers always have a good time.
Trouble is, this never goes past a fucking jam session. I want a group to create with, play with on a regular basis, maybe lay down some tracks, do a fucking EP or something, play a show or two, share the beauty that is ska music with people, skank, drink lots of beer, and just fucking enjoy life. Granted, 21 is still fairly young, so I still have patience. But this shits irkin my soul, guys, and I had to vent. Thanks for reading my nonsense. :)
